“Make It a Double” published by Fiction on the Web

Another day, another reprint of Make It a Double is live. I’ve been very fortunate to have this novelette reprinted three times in the last few months. This time, it appears on Fiction on the Web, a popular destination for short fiction for over 25 years. And at least one reader (who is definitely not me) seemed to like it, already posting an awesome review:

“Make It a Double” published by the Short Story Substack newsletter

My novelette Make It a Double has been published in the Short Story Substack newsletter. It’s an email newsletter that selects one short story per month to send to its subscribers. The Theodore Roosevelt quote they chose for the newsletter perfectly sums up the theme of the story: “Comparison is the thief of joy.”

“The Salt Circle” published in The Literary Hatchet

My weird fiction story The Salt Circle has been published in Issue #32 of The Literary Hatchet by Pear Tree Press. You can download it for free for a limited time, or you can pick up a paperback copy on Amazon. This is one of the weirder stories I’ve written. It’s about a man who turns into a slug, and what happens when his wife dies after trapping him in a circle of salt on the kitchen floor.

“Those Who Turn From God” accepted into Dragon Gems anthology

My folklore-based horror story Those Who Turn From God has been accepted into the 2023 Dragon Gems anthology by Water Dragon Publishing. The story is based on a real grave in the Mount Holly Cemetery in New Jersey, where you’ll find an eerie phrase carved into stone: “Thus is the fate of those who turn from God.” In the woods nearby is the Witch’s Well, where an alleged witch was hanged and then thrown down the well. Those Who Turn From God combines the two legends into a story about what happens when the witches in the well return to get their revenge.
